PDF/A

A standardized version of the PDF (Portable Document Format) that is designed for long term document archiving. PDF/A applies a number of constraints to PDF files which aim to ensure that they can still be rendered in the future despite obsolescence of associated formats. Requirements for PDF/A-1 compatibility include: embedding of all fonts into the file, no transparency and restrictions on image formats.
